About the Brand Breakfast

CharityComms’ Brand Breakfast is a group for professionals working in brand to come together to discuss issues of mutual interest and share examples of good practice.

The format of the meetings is usually two or three presentations on a specific topic, followed by small group discussions, providing a combination of best practice and peer-to-peer sharing.

These events are a great opportunity to meet your peers, compare notes on workplace practices and share successes, ideas, challenges and inspiration. The group is designed to encourage networking and peer to peer support, sharing issues in a ‘safe’ environment.

If you’d like to be one of the first to hear about these events, please email Sarah Cutress to be added to the mailing list.

If you’re interested in presenting at a future event or joining the steering group, please contact Vanessa Weddell.
